#woctoberfest: jamie’s thirty-one randomly-ordered faves

day six: sooraya qadir (dust) | afghani

the story; sooraya is a sunni muslim born in afghanistan. her powers manifested when someone attempted to take off her niqab and she attacked him in self-defense. the x-men brought sooraya back to new york, where she joined the xavier institute and became a member of emma frost’s hellions squad. she kept her powers after m-day and joined the new x-men team. after that disbanded, she became a founding member of the young x-men. sooraya initially went with wolverine after the schism, but later changed her mind and returned to utopia.

abilities; sooraya has the ability to transform her body into sand. she can control the sand as if it is a miniature storm and resume her human form at will. while in her sand form, sooraya is largely unaffected by telepathy and magic. the shape and velocity of her storm can change at will, and she can use it to attack people or dodge attacks.

seen in; new x-men v1 133-156, v2. new x-men: hellions. x-men: messiah complex. young x-men.
